Slow Magic. Only a Master can command the skills at the level to take us from one season to the next. Focus must be perfectly aligned with Time for the long-term. Preparation must be faultless as only the subtle, invisible development of the final magnifique will do.
To continue from yesterday’s post (377), as part of Spring’s design, the Maestro denotes that the wisdom of elephants had originally been given through the gift of listening. To be able to grow the very best and biggest ears is a trick indeed. These structures continue to peak well beyond May time. Anybody would think that they were not elephant’s ears at all, but a rather decorative plant. A most strange perception.
Autumn’s most celebrated extravert, the vermilion Magnolia seed began its journey at early Spring positioned in the blossom’s central powerhouse, the very heart of every flower, where the pollen resides.
The energy centre delights in contradiction, a metamorphosis from Beauty to Beast to Beauty progresses through 7 month deep, but fragile transformation. In the mix there is the simple elegance of delicate floral structures, only to precede an eventual prehistoric ugliness, but there is a divine purpose to all this wizardry.
Through this dark, mysterious process, now mini wizened pods of wood appear. Slowly, the magic emerges, from the dull comes daring. On opening, bulging alien-like red eyes will surprise us, maybe even shock as they eventually pop out of their sockets. But how did they get there? Spring’s memories of that sophisticated floral “royalty” are now distant, but Paradox and Illusion is all to play for.
